SOURCE: 1995 mitsubishi pajero glow plugs

When you turn on the key, a relay engages for a few seconds and heats up the glow plugs. It sounds like the relay is not passing current, which could indicate either corroded contacts, or a bad relay all together. I would guess the former since your panel light indicates the relay is functioning correctly. I would suggest replacing the relay, or possibly if you feel comfortable with it, disassemble the relay and clean the contacts.

this sounds like the glow plug relay is u/s or stuck, locate the relay in your fues box and give it a tap or remove it and replace it, it might have just come loose, if this does not work it will need replacing...hope that helps

My ford 6.7 diesel cranks over fast,but does not start

There can be several reasons for this. The cheapest reasons to look at are spark to the glow-plugs and fuel to the cylinders. If you have a "ready light" on the dash that tells you when the glow-plugs are ready, you need to listen for the clicking of the glow-plug relay and the blinking of every other light that is on in sync with the clicking sound.

If the clicking and light dimming is not observed your power relay to the glow-plug relay is probably bad. A voltmeter will be needed to test for juice passing through the the power relay. If you have juice going to the glow-plug relay from the power box relay and it does not cycle off and on, your glow-plug relay is bad or the glow-plugs are bad.

You can test the power to each glow-plug with a test light or meter (when the power relay and glow-plug relay are cycling). Glow-plugs are similar to spark plugs and they can be tested. It can be tricky or you can just replace them.

Fuel, this time of year is subject to freeze-ups. Additive will help, noting Diesel additive and NOT gasoline additives. In short, Pyroil makes a starting fuel which has protective oil in the spray to help the cylinders. A spray of starting fluid will diagnose that fuel starvation is the problem. It is tricky to use when the glow-plugs are hot. On injector systems with O rings the cold weather can sometimes cause the O rings to shrink when sitting and leak. Your fuel will run back to the tank. Cranking will not be enough to draw up the fuel. Another way is to change fuel filters BUT to put some diesel into the fuel filter to prime the system. No guaranty that the problem will not reoccur because you have not permanently fixed anything. Hope this helps, if not then something has let loose like a fuelpump.

Starting problem on kangoo

Check the big fuses in the power distribution box under the bonnet ,this is a UK reg vehicle kept outside no doubt and these fuse connections under the bonnet do get damp ,if still no joy for whatever reason then but a manual push button starter switch and wire them in direct manual overide ,power to switch then direct to the glow plugs ,so when the light dont come push button in for 10secs and no more and away you go,Clean the big fuses and spray with some 3in1 or a oil can with engine oil not that wd40 and lubricate the connections where the fuses push into.

Won't start but cranks has 300k miles. Check fuel pump working, replace glow plugs, checked fuses and relays, fuel pump won't come on but works hooked it direct to battery, wait to start light does not...

If you can't pull the codes from the pcm it has either died or lost it's ground assuming it has power. I would try to get a wiring diagram and check both the power and the ground for the computer itself, because it is what turns on the pump and the wait to start light.

2002 F250 7.3 wont start below 40 degrees

will try to help. your engine glow plugs are most likely the problem, when youcycle the key on, it says wait to start on dash panel right? it means it, the glow plugs preheat the cylinder to fire the fuel when it turns over. you should heva an electrical plug under the front part of engine , the plugin heats the oil during cold weather to insure a smoother start for the motor. i do suggest you use anti-gel in your fuel and please follow the instructions on the bottle that you can purchase at any auto parts store. replace your glow plugs[ they are easy to replace] they are located above the cylinders almost like spark plugs in a gasoline engine. only smallet in size. if you are mechanically inclined and can replace spark plugs in a v8 motor, you can do this yourself, but be prepaired to pay $100.00 for the glow plugs and i also suggest that after replacement, you wait for the wait to start light goes off on dash before you attempt to start the engine. it's a very common mistake. hope this helps and thank you for choosing if this helps a 4thumbs up would be great

you can use a 12v test light or multi meter to check
for power at each glow plug during the cycle if you
have power you can do a visual check pull a plug
with power wire on have a helper turn key on use a
clip lead to ground the plug (hold plug with pliers)
if it works the element will get HOT.
if that checks out you can also try changing to a lighter oil a fresh fuel filter and everyones favorite
plug me in. hope this helps good luck.

Won't Start & No glow Plug Light on Dash

I am with a similar problem...

After putting on a new sump i found that the starter motor would work cranking the engine but no power is going to the glow plugs. The light on the dash does not appear either.

The relay for the coils does click but that is the end of it. I have a suspission it is the imobiliser but after taking the battery on and off several times to reset... still nothing.

There is fuel, good battery (fully charged), fuel lines are clean pressurised...

Any ideas???

My 93s 190e 2.0 takes long time to start in morning

Get compression test. Make sure all valves are seating. Check injectors for fuel flow. If all elce fails. Move to a warm state. (Just kidding..!)
